If proposals for pizza parties and punching Grover Norquist in the family jewels haven’t already pushed the White House’s “We the People” petition program past the point of absurdity, a petition launched Wednesday just might.

It requests a public display of everyone’s favorite wedding-reception dance — the Hokey Pokey — from America’s commander-in-chief. (RELATED: Top 10 ridiculous White House “We the People” petitions)

“We feel that in this time of despair, that President Obama should do the Hokey Pokey on national television during a special Presidential Address to the nation,” the petition read.

“As a show of bipartisanship, President Obama should lead with his right foot. After all, that’s what it’s all about.”

The White House removed the petition after it attracted 617 signatures. (RELATED: White House ‘secede’ petitions reach 675,000 signatures, 50-state participation)

For some reason, however, the petition to allow Americans to “punch Grover Norquist in the dick” is still collecting signatures.
